‘We will NEVER accept it’ - Turkey HITS BACK at ally US over Israel embassy in Jerusalem

TURKISH President Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and stated Turkey will never recognise the move, in a sign of growing tensions in the Middle East.
The Turkish leader accused President Trump’s “indifference policies” for fuelling violence in Palestine and encouraging Israel’s continued occupation of Palestinian land.

Speaking during a joint press conference with Prime Minister Theresa May in London, President Erdogan said: “We will never accept US attempt to move embassy to Jerusalem and to recognise Jerusalem as Israeli capital.
“Israel took these steps with a logic of ‘I am might, therefore I am right’.
“Israel is the occupier there and it continues terrorising Palestinians.”
Criticising the US directly, he added: “History will not forgive the US, we will see this reality.
He reminded the press 128 countries had rejected the US decision to relocate their embassy to Jerusalem in a UN General Assembly vote in December 2017.
Mrs May also condemned the violence in Gaza and called for an “independent and transparent investigation”.She said: “The loss of life we have seen is tragic and extremely concerning.
“Such violence is destructive to peace efforts and we call on all sides to show restraint.
At least 62 Palestinians were killed and thousands more injured during violent clashes along the Israeli-Gaza border on Monday, after protests were sparked following President Trump’s decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
President Erdogan has since called on the UN and international nations to “act without wasting time and stop this oppression”.
He has also called for an emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation following the violence in Gaza, which is due to take place on Friday.
Speaking to students in London on Monday, President Erdogan stated defiantly: “We will continue to stand with Palestinian people with determination.
“We will not allow today to be the day the Muslim world loses Jerusalem.”
The Turkish leader said the violence committed against Palestinian demonstrators was a “humanitarian tragedy” and “what Israel is doing is genocide”.
He added: “From 1948, this occupation has been ongoing.
“Palestine has shrunk and shrunk. They are trying to kick them out of the land.
“Israel is a terrorist state.”
